Time to ride a glowing fish, eat fried grasshoppers, savor sushi amongst armed ninjas, rave wearing a horse mask, test your cape in a wind tunnel and buy superpowers, travel through vibrant tunnels and chug too many shots in a Soviet fridge... There's no better place to take a trippy trip through time, space, dimensions and substances than the New York City jungle. Here's your guide to a wild journey.
Over the last few weeks we've been treated to another round of new, sharp, and progressive menswear. In Europe, we couldn't help but lust over the headlining collections, but here in New York we got gratification from discovering the next wave. Designers who have to be unique without the resources of a major fashion house always yield clothes that are actually wearable, genuinely interesting, or occasionally both. We rounded up a few of our favorite designers from NYFWM, all of whom you'll want to get in your wardrobe for the next few seasons.
Kim Kardashian was recently quoted saying that when she breaks her Atkins diet she prefers to do so with half an order of McDonald's highly esteemed McNuggets. Half. As if being married to Yeezus wasn't enough, she now has to throw it in our faces that she has the self restraint of a Royal British Guard. Klassic Kim. However, do not shudder at your inferiority - there's no shame in a binge session here or there (or everywhere). In fact, by sticking to eating the wrong amount of the right things your overeating has the potential to be a ~healthy~ habit. Take that, Kim.
While most days it's socially acceptable to caption your Instagram photos "#NoNewFriends" and wallow in your socially inept behavior, today is not one of those days. "Why the f*ck not?" - you may ask. Well, according to our highly revered calendar of all strange, but important, holidays (ahem-National Tequila Day is on Sunday), this week marked "National New Friends Day" and we're ~trying~ to muster up the courage to mingle. That's right, it's time to go outside and talk to people other than the local homeless man you never have money for. You're welcome, Mom.
Want abs like Gigi? A butt like Sofia Vergara? Arms like Cameron Diaz? It's not totally impossible. While yes, we have to admit that the Hadid gene pool is definitely an advantage, our beloved celebs don't get their perfectly sculpted bodies just from lying around. With over a month left of summer, it's not too late to get the beach bod you told yourself you'd have by June.
Last night the Lonely Whale Foundation threw their first annual summer sunset dinner at a private penthouse garden in the heart of SoHo to benefit their ocean conservation efforts in education and millennial engagement.

It was just over a year ago. Lauren Santo Domingo, being Lauren Santo Domingo, was gracing the public with her appearance at yet another silly event or other, and there it was - the only thing that could upstage her billion dollar golden tresses that could buy and sell you in a second, the perfect dress. This proper silhouetted piece of heaven pulling daintily below the knee, slunk off the shoulder with a Georgia May Jagger tooth gap bodice that just winks of fun. The kind of thing you could wear to a garden party, tea with the Queen, or to ruin someone's marriage. After all, for the modern woman, versatility is key.
Movie theaters are overrated, anyway. Looking for an affordable (but fun) date idea? A dreamy outdoor movie screening is probably your best bet. Some are free, most are cheap, and if you want to impress that girl you just met, this is a romantic way to show her you aren't boring AF. A blanket, a bottle of wine, and a good movie... what more could a gal ask for?
